When asked what he loves most about hosting the Channel 4 show, Kevin had nothing but positive things to say.

“For over 20 years Grand Designs has been a passport that has taken me into strange worlds, beautiful buildings and the lives of others.

“It has allowed me to celebrate the most vivid and the most positive of all our human drives and emotions.

“It has led me on my own architectural adventures, it’s a blast.”

Currently, people will be able to celebrate the popular show in Birmingham at Grand Designs Live as there are hundreds of exhibitors, displays, demonstrations, talks, stage events and advice given.

Giving people a glimpse at what they can expect, Kevin added: “It’s the television series sprung to life!

“You can feel immersed in design, architecture, sofas and sip panels. Visitors often spend the whole day there.”

The annual event takes place in Birmingham and London every year in the Spring and Autumn.

In the upcoming episode of Grand Designs Kevin returns to visit Jon and Noreen to see their project in Gloucestershire.

In 2013, the duo planned to build a three-bed treehouse on a half-acre patch of woodland.

A synopsis reads: “Their stacked three-box design was to be almost gravity-defying to avoid harming any tree roots and a mirror glass ground floor to reflect the surrounding trees but their £250,000 budget didn’t seem to match the project’s high ambition.

“Despite having worked hands-on for long hours with help from friends and family, by 2016 the house was barely ready enough for them to move in and the money had run out with the project not finished. Seven years later, Kevin returns to see their progress.”

Grand Designs continues Wednesdays on Channel 4 from 9pm.
